Wood

The wood used to make our furniture can be sensitive to variations in temperature and moisture. This means that slight cracks may appear and joints can loosen depending on seasons and room climate. This natural occurence does not affect the quality of our furniture and gives them a unique charm.

Varnished wood (satin or gloss)

  • Dust your furniture with a soft duster as often as you like.
  • If the furniture is very dusty, clean it with a slightly damp, non-abrasive sponge, after first testing it on a non-visible varnished part. Wipe with a soft, dry, lint-free cloth.
  • To restore shine to the furniture, use a silicone-based aerosol care product (for furniture).
  • Avoid the use of wax or any wax-based product.
  • Avoid direct exposure to sunlight, artificial sources of heat and air conditioning and external conditions (damp, rain, etc.).

Varnished wood (matte)

  • Dust your furniture with a soft duster as often as you like.
  • If the furniture is very dusty, clean it with a slightly damp, non-abrasive sponge, after first testing it on a non-visible varnished part. Wipe with a soft, dry, lint-free cloth.
  • Avoid the use of wax or any wax-based product.
  • Avoid direct exposure to sunlight, artificial sources of heat and air conditioning and external aggressions (damp, rain, etc.).

Waxed wood

  • Dust your furniture with a soft duster as often as you like.
  • Dust carefully with a duster and a spray polish once a week.
  • Once or twice a year, apply furniture wax - because beeswax can be sticky, we suggest applying a mixture of beeswax and plant-based wax. Allow it to dry, then buff with a dry woollen cloth to shine.
  • If your furniture has been polished too often, it may feel slightly tacky to the touch; you will need to remove the old polish. For this, use turpentine, but test it first on a non-visible waxed part.
  • Avoid direct exposure to sunlight, artificial sources of heat and air conditioning and external conditions (damp, rain, etc.).

Lacquered or painted wood (unvarnished)

  • Dust your lacquered or painted furniture frequently with a damp cloth; dry off immediately with a dry, soft, lint-free cloth.
  • Avoid direct exposure to sunlight, artificial sources of heat and air conditioning and external conditions (damp, rain, etc.).

Garden teak

  • The appearance of teak changes over time with the effect of sunlight and takes on an attractive silvery-grey colour.
  • Dust with a soft duster as often as you like.
  • If the furniture is very dusty, clean it with a slightly damp, non-abrasive sponge.
  • Dry with a soft, dry, lint-free cloth.
  • It is advised to oil your furniture before its first use and then twice a year, in the mid-spring and early autumn, to retain its original golden honey colour.
  • Use only good quality teak oil, not a derivative product or synthetic oil.
  • Apply the oil to a dry, lint-free cloth or a soft paint brush and coat the furniture evenly.
  • Allow to dry for 24 to 48 hours, then wipe the furniture over again with a dry cloth. Repeat the process a second time if necessary.
  • It is advised to protect this furniture from the weather and frost.

Glass table tops

  • As glass is a fragile material, we recommend that you store your outdoor furniture with glass tops in a dry, cool, frost-free place indoors.
  • Cutlery may scratch the glass surface. We recommend using placemats.

Zinc

  • Galvanised metal has been aged to give it a patinated appearance.
  • It is vulnerable to scratches, water and finger marks, as well as certain 'acidic' foods (e.g. vinegar, lemon), so requires it requires continuous care.
  • We advise you to avoid leaving spills of water on the surface and to wipe the worktops with a soft cloth after each use and any splashes. We also recommend the use of trivets and worktop savers.
  • If the surface is dirty, clean it with a slightly damp sponge and dry with a soft, dry cloth.

Coating

Synthetic coating (vinyl, PVC, polyurethane...)

  • Dust your furniture with a soft duster as often as you like.
  • If the coating is dirty, clean it with a non-abrasive, slightly damp, soapy sponge. Dry with a soft, dry, lint-free cloth.

Split leather coating

  • Dust your furniture with a soft duster as often as you like.
  • If the coating is dirty, clean it with a non-abrasive, slightly damp, soapy sponge. Dry with a soft, dry, lint-free cloth.
  • Avoid direct exposure to sunlight, artificial sources of heat and air conditioning and external conditions (damp, rain, etc.).

Soft furnishings

Non-removable

  • To care for the fabrics covering your furniture, you need to remove dust and, if necessary, remove stains or clean them.
  • Given the variety of treatments depending on the origin of the stain, we recommend that you contact a cleaning professional whenever you have doubts about your own ability to remove stains without damaging the fabric.

Removable

  • To keep your covers and curtains looking their best for as long as possible, we recommend dry cleaning for all of our removable soft furnishings.
  • However, some products can also be machine washed at 30°C. Please check the instructions on the labels.

Engraved metal

  • Dust your furniture with a soft duster as often as you like.
  • If the furniture is dirty, clean it with a non-abrasive, slightly damp, soapy sponge. Dry with a soft, dry, lint-free cloth.
  • Avoid direct exposure to sunlight, artificial sources of heat and air conditioning and external conditions (damp, rain, etc.).

Hide rugs and furniture

  • We advise you to care for your hide items regularly. To do this, remove dust regularly using a vacuum cleaner (low suction) or a soft brush, in the direction of the hair.
  • In case of stains, mop up spills immediately with a towel or kitchen paper, then wipe with clean water and a clean, slightly damp cloth, in the direction of the hair. Dry the hide with a towel, always wiping in the direction of the hair, then leave it to dry naturally.
  • Avoid direct exposure to light (natural or artificial) that may cause discolouration of the hide, and proximity to sources of excessive heat.
  • Avoid rubbing the hide.
  • Do not use soaps or other creams intended for leathers.

Painted metal

  • Clean your metal furniture with clean or soapy water without detergent.
  • Dry thoroughly to avoid traces of limescale.
  • Do not rub with an abrasive or metal sponge and do not use scouring powder or any other detergent.
  • For tough dirt, use an alcohol-based window cleaning product or a specific product such as a multi-purpose cleaner.

Composite material (concrete look)

  • Clean the surfaces with a non-abrasive soapy sponge and wipe dry with a cloth.
  • Use a non-aggressive cleaning product (without ammonia or bleach).
  • Avoid allowing acidic stains to soak in (wine, fizzy drinks, orange juice, tomato).
